Flash has stopped a potentially unsafe operation (all files are local)

Jan 10, 2012 11:41 PM

We trying to run a small flash movie locally from a local html with some javascripts to communicate to and from the flash movie and it worked fine

however sometime late last year we started seing this message pop up. So it must been some changes in flash and/or in the browsers.

 

Running IE9 in compaility mode allows the flashmovie to work correctly.

 

Now we want this to work on Mac as well and I can't get Safari to avoid this.

 

Main problem is that for whatever reason Flash thinks the local html file is internet-enabled. The error box is not saying a link to an internet site, just like this:

 

Adobe Flash Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation.

The following local application on your computer or network:

C:\location\file.swf

is trying to communicate with this Internet-enabled location:

C:\location\file.html

 

Why can't we no longer run flash movies locally like this. There is no interaction with internet in any of the files.

 

How do we fix it, having the users add the directory in Trusted locations in Flash Global Settings is not a good way.
